COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.

12oz can on a cold day. Pour is pitch black. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted coffee and malt. At first sip I am amazed to taste sweet bitter chocolate with coffee. Alcohol is very well hidden.Only hints can be detected. I could have this for dessert. yum

Can: Super viscous pour, black as night with a creamy, tan-leather head that caps off the abyss nicely. Powerful nose; roasted & burnt malts, grains, cocoa beans, espresso, & mild char. A touch of leafy, herbal, & ashy tones blur the line between roast & bitter hoppage at times. Undertones of anise, molasses, & dark fruit. First sip shows the insane mouth feel of this beer. So thick & chewy, I need a goddamn fork. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, creamy espresso, with an overcasting of light figs, raisins, & even some black cherry that remains sweet, never getting tart or twangy. Good addition of sweetness from the malt up front that leads to a more roasted, woodsy, & bitter back-end. Faint herbaceous notes, charred nuttiness, a hint of smoke, ash, bitter chocolate... Wow. Really love this beer.

Dark brown to black color, light brown head. Roasted malt nose, licorice, chocolate, brown sugar, hint of espresso. Chocolate taste, burnt sugar, heavy roasted, hint of alcohol, bitter coffee finish. Full body, soft carbonation, velvety mouthfeel, oily texture.

Nez de mélasse, alcool, cassonade. En bouche, c'est pas trop sucré, soyeux, alcool, caramel brûlé. La finale est soutenue, alcoolisée, chaude et caramel. Très bonne stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CraftBeerNick (1098) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Can at home, imported from Stockholm, 20th March 15. Shit the bed, this is a good imperial stout. Pours clean, nice tan head, aroma, caramel, leather, liquorice, alcohol. Taste is up front liquorice, sweet, but the high ibu kicks in for the balance. Loads of leather, sweet slightly salty liquorice. Smooth and really enjoyable. First Impy in a can. Excellent beer
